Walking Maps

As part of our Go Green Communities program, BEST developed community walking maps for several Vancouver neighbourhoods. The maps are intended to show how easy it is to combat AutoObesity by using active transportation for those short trips of only a couple of kilometers. The maps are conveniently laid out in concentric circles of walks that take 10 to 20 or minutes. You are welcome to download the maps for personal use. They are in PDF format.
